How The Most Expensive Auction Failed? Porsche Type 64 Is Still On Sale!!!

Porsche Type 64

This is the start of Porsche, the start of one of the world’s most famous sports car manufacturers in the world. The incredible Type 64 appeared in 1939 and had not been known for a long time. Many lived in the belief that the famous 356 was the first model produced under the baton of Ferdinand Porsche …
“This is the only surviving specimen personally operated by Ferdinand Porsche” – are words that could be heard in the auditorium in Monterey.

And just when this legendary, pre-war model was supposed to shine in full glory and receive media attention for its expected bid ($ 20 million) – the auction was a fiasco …
The auctioneer ruined everything with his mispronunciation.
The auctioneer, Dutch Maarten ten Holder, opened the $30 million bid and even then things got weird. Quickly, $30 million turned out to be an instant deal on the big screens, and it didn’t stop there. Bids came quickly, $40 million appeared on the screen, and soon $50 million.

Finally, an unrealistic $70 million was reached, and when ten Holder realized the mistake and confirmed that the actual bid was $17 million, the number on the screens quickly corrected. The crowd went out to protest, and the Type 64 remains on offer …
“We will continue making every effort to sell the car,” said a RM Sotheby’s spokesperson in a released statement.
